It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.”

Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince

64 Quotes After Grief and Life After Loss Whats your Grief

Here are 64 (okay fine, 63) quotes about grief, coping, and life after loss. Although we love a good grief quote, Litsa and I were slow to join in on the quote-pic phenomenon. The internet just seemed plastered with inspirational platitudes pasted on pictures of sunsets and rainbows. It all seemed so trite and reductive we decided not to add to the noise. Then we got over ourselves because, well, a good quote serves many purposes. A quote helps us put our own thoughts and feelings into perspective. It allows us to use the words of others to communicate or to convey a message. It helps us to feel a sense of commonality when we find our feelings, experiences, and observations match those of another. We hope something here resonates with you (and feel free to steal and share any of these images with your grieving family and friends).

“The times you lived through, the people you shared those times with; Nothing brings it all to life like an old mix tape. It does a better job of storing up memories than actual brain tissue can do. Every mix tape tells a story. Put them together, and they can add up to the story of a life.”

~ Rob Sheffield, Love is a Mix Tape

~ Thomas Campbell

“When I think of death, and of late the idea has come with alarming frequency, I seem at peace with the idea that a day will dawn when I no longer be among those living in this valley of strange humors.

I can accept the idea of my own demise, but I am unable to accept the death of anyone else.

I find it impossible to let a friend or relative go into that country to no return.

Disbelief becomes my close companion, and anger follows in its wake.

I answer the heroic question ‘Death, where is thy sting?’ with ‘It is here in my heart and mind and memories.'”

~ Colette

“There are no happy endings. Endings are the saddest part, so just give me a happy middle and a very happy start.”

Your absence is inconspicuous,

Nobody can tell what I lack.”

~ Sylvia Plath, Parliament Hill Fields

“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built of a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touches some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you’re there.”

~ Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“When we have joy we crave to share; We remember them.

~ Sylvan Kamens & Rabbi Jack Riemer

In all the old familiar places

That this heart of mine embraces

All day through.”

One more time

in a transformation
as quick as a shooting star’s
I will cross over into you
and ask you to carry
not only your own memories
but mine too until you
too lie down and erase us
both together into oblivion.”

~ Galway Kinnell, Promissory Note

They’re cutting down trees

They’re putting up reindeer

And singing songs of joy and peace

Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on.

Smiles from the threshold of the year to come,

Whispering ‘It will be happier’…”

Quotes from the book “Choice.

About the freedom and inner strength of a person Edith Eva Eger - LitRes

Quotes 748

when we say choice 31, we always mean "freedom". To be free is to live in the present. When we get stuck in the past, when we endlessly repeat: “And why did I go there and not here…”, “And why did I marry this one and not that one…” - we live in a prison that we build with our own hands. When we are looking only to the future, repeating like a spell: “I will not be happy until I graduate from the university ...”, “I will not be happy until I meet the right person”, we live in the same prison, built by the same hands. The only way to exercise your freedom of choice is to live in the present.

Freedom begins when we learn to accept what has happened.

Being passive means letting others decide for you. To be aggressive means to decide for others. Being persistent means deciding for yourself. It means to believe that everything in your life is enough, and you are completely self-sufficient.

In our life, often more serious grievances are hidden behind minor sorrows; seemingly insignificant experiences reflect deep pain.

Now, on the eve of my return to the concentration camp, I remind myself that both Adolf Hitler and Corrie ten Bohm live in each of us. We have the ability to love and the ability to hate. To which of them will we reach out - to our inner Hitler or our inner Cor

We can all become victims in one way or another during our lifetime. We all endure illnesses, experience adversity, and mistreatment sooner or later, all of which are caused by circumstances, people, or institutions over which none of us has control. That is life. This is called victimization. And these processes appear from the outside. A bully neighbor, a boorish boss, a tyrant husband, a cheating lover, a discriminatory law, an accident that ends up in the hospital. On the contrary, the victim syndrome is caused by the internal state of a person. No one but ourselves can impose on us the psychology of the victim. We enter the role of victim not because of what happens to us, but because we choose to hold on to our martyrdom. The consciousness of the victim begins to develop - a consciousness that breaks our worldview and our way of life;

If you ask me what is the most common diagnosis in people who come to me, I would hardly name depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, although these conditions were most common in those whom I knew, loved and guided to freedom. No, I'll say it's hunger. We are hungry. We crave approval, attention, affection. We long for the freedom to accept life, to know ourselves and to be ourselves.

When we do not allow ourselves to mourn our losses, emotional wounds and disappointed hopes, we are doomed to experience them again and again.

“Always use beautiful things right away,” he tells me. You never know when you won't have them.

... Everything can be taken away from a person, except for one thing - his last freedom: to choose his attitude to any given circumstances, to choose his own path.
